  • 6 slices stale bread buns, rolls, donuts, challah, toast or another type of bread
  • 3 Tablespoons of butter 1 Tbsp + 2 Tbsp
  • 4 Beaten Eggs
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and use 1 Tablespoon of butter to coat the inside of your 8 in. square baking dish.
  • Break your bread (I made larger pieces, rather than crumbling it up) in to the buttered baking dish.
  • Melt your remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, and drizzle over bread pieces.
  • In a bowl, mix remaining ingredients (don't forget to beat your eggs first) until mixed well.
  • Pour this mixture over the bread, making sure to evenly coat each piece.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top of the bread pudding springs back after lightly touching it with a fork.
